Summary

To improve our housing conditions include bigger bathrooms, more space in the dinning room to guarantee physical distancing of at least 1 meter, portable sinks in different spots for frequent hand-washing or disinfection, provide medical masks to everyone at the house, disposable gowns and gloves for the nurses to wear. All this key measure expenses to protect against Covid 19 weren't part of our 2020 budget, and since we paused our fundraising events this year, we are cash flow constrained.

Challenge

Last May, in response to COVID-19 pandemic, Fundacion Andrea suspended housing and transportation services. It turned out very difficult to maintain a safe environment for our cancer patients, staff and volunteers. Getting the best care means cancer patients must travel away from home with their caregivers taking place a financial burden on patients during an already challenging time. These families need us, they need our housing, food and transportation services, they need your support.

Solution

While we resume our services under the "new normal" conditions, with the support of an occupational health and safety advisor we carried out risk assessments to put in place preventive measures to ensure our patients safe housing conditions. All this key measure expenses to protect against Covid 19 weren't part of our 2020 budget, and since we paused our fundraising events this year, we are cash flow constrained.

Long-Term Impact

The home improvement include bigger bathrooms, more space in the dinning room to guarantee physical distancing of at least 1 meter, portable sinks in different spots for frequent hand-washing or disinfection, provide medical masks to everyone at the house, disposable gowns and gloves for the nurses to wear. These measures will help us manage a safe return to our home of all our patients and therefore they will continue their treatment.
